Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Data were collected from a common garden drought experiment in the Austrian Central Alps using intact vegetation-soil monoliths from an extensively managed meadow and a nearby abandoned grassland. The monoliths were installed in summer 2013 on the meadow site and pre-incubated until drought simulation was started in early summer 2014. The effects of land use on the response of plant C allocation and plant-microbial C transfer to drought and rewetting were studied by conducting two 13C pulse-chase labelling campaigns. A description of all data and abbreviations used in the excel file can be found in tab "0-README".
